English defender Calum Chambers is the latest player to join Steven Gerrard at Aston Villa. The England international left Arsenal to sign for Villa earlier this week.

Chambers had six months remaining on his Arsenal contract before he left the club to sign for Villa on a free transfer. He has signed a three-and-a-half year deal at Villa Park until the end of the 2024/25 season. The England international was not a regular under manager Mikel Arteta at Arsenal as he has played just five times for the North London team this season. His final appearance for the Gunners came in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final tie with hosts and Merseyside giants Liverpool at Anfield. Chambers came on for the injured Cedric Soares during the first half of the Liverpool game which ended in a goalless draw. Liverpool would go on to beat hosts Arsenal 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium through a pair of goals from Portugal international Diogo Jota either side of the interval to secure a final place against London team Chelsea via a 2-0 aggregate win.

English defender Chambers became an Arsenal player in the summer of 2014 when he signed from Southampton. Chambers was the longest serving player with the Gunners before his free transfer move to Villa.

Chambers is the fourth player signed by Villa since the appointment of Steven Gerrard as their new boss towards the end of last year. With the influence of Gerrard, the former European champions have been able to sign the trio of Philippe Coutinho, Robin Olsen and Lucas Digne.

Steven Gerrard is also looking to bolster his squad with more quality players. The Premier League team has been seriously linked with a move for Uruguayan midfielder Rodrigo Bentacurwho is also a target for French team Lyon.
